In addition to the session, editing is included. After the session, we hand-edit for toning, color correcting, and stylizing. We also do any simple retouching. Any extensive retouching may be requested and is billed at $80 per hour. If any extensive retouching is needed, 30 minutes to 1 hour is usually sufficient.
After editing, you will receive the images through a private online gallery for viewing your photos, playing a slideshow, downloading the digital files to your computer, and ordering products through our professional lab. The online gallery is also a great way to share your photos with family and friends!
So you can print your images, post on social media, and use your images how ever you'd like, we provide a copyright release. We also offer a variety of affordable prints and products as well as graphic design and printing for holiday cards, birth announcements, thank you cards, and more!

Our First Year Collection is an entire year's worth of memories wrapped up in one neat little package! Pre-scheduled sessions take the first year of parenthood and capture it forever. We love seeing a snuggly little newborn grow into a spirited one-year old with his or her own personality!
Our standard First Year Collection is $287 per session and includes a:
Don't want the maternity session? Want to add a three-month or nine-month session? No problem! Create a customized First Year Collection by booking 3 or more sessions for any length of time (30 minutes, 45 minutes, 1 hour, or 2 hours) and for any milestone and we will apply a 30% discount
Just like individual collections, any First Year Collection includes all editing, an online gallery, and copyright release.
Typically, for individual sessions, 1/2 down is due at the time of booking with the remaining balance due the day of the session. For The First Year Collection, typically payment is due at each session but 1/2 of the total can be paid down with the remaining balance due at the last session. We also have 0% interest monthly payment plans available.
If doing a newborn session, to ensure we get the most out of your session, it’s important to keep your baby awake for at least 1 to 2 hours prior to your session. A great way to wake baby up is to give him/her a bath! Feeding your baby right before you come to your session will also help make him/her nice and sleepy once you arrive for your session! Another thing to consider if you would like family photos is to wear simple and neutral clothing so to not distract from your new baby.
An album is a great way to showcase your baby's photos! With a custom design and photo layout, up to 100 pages, photographic and press papers, thick or thin page options, and multiple cover options all included in the price, the process is simple. Also, choose from a variety of sizes and optional upgrades.
The best way to do album is to purchase our $650 album credit for only $500 (a savings of $150!) at the time of booking or anytime before your last session. A typical album is between $600 and $700 so the credit will give you the perfect amount to work with when choosing all of your options. We would be in touch after your last session's photos are completed to schedule an Album Consultation. Multiple credits can be purchased if interested in companion albums for grandparents and/or other family. Just let us know and we can add an album credit into your package!
We also have affordable book options starting at $270.
